At first Mr Cantor demanded that every scctluii ot the bill should be read, but the clerk was toward the last allowed to gollop from section to section until he struck some- thing that the opposition suspected was not tf hat it seemed. One amendment was in- sisted npon so strongly by Senator Ives that the senate consented to take a recess for ten minutes to enable him to write out his idea of how the section ought to be read. When he had done this the amendment was re- jected. It was intended to facilitate the taking of property for the fair site nnder process of eminent domain.
